Channel One Sound System is one of the UK’s best known and most loved reggae sound systems. Having taken over the running of their father’s sound in 1979, Mikey Dread and his brother Jah T took the sound to local blues parties and dances. Mikey took the name Channel One as homage to the legendary Channel One studio in Jamaica. In 1982, Channel One started playing at Notting Hill Carnival, they have played at Carnival every year since.
Channel One is led by Mikey Dread, original selector, who plays a strictly vinyl selection from his one turn table. Alongside Mikey Dread are various vocalists and MCs who compliment the music with Rastafarian song and chanting. Current MCs are Macky Banton and Ras Sherby. Channel One play a unique selection of conscious reggae, exclusive dubplates and uplifting steppas. Channel One’s hand built sound system provides a rich heavyweight bass sound, which compliments their tight selection of old and new roots music.
Over the last 5 years, Channel One has gone from strength to strength, holding a residency in one of London’s coolest warehouse venues – Village Underground. Channel One have taken their sound system to festivals all over Europe, as well as performing DJs sets all over the world, including Colombia, Mexico, New York, India, Nepal, Thailand, Dubai and many more.
